Manufacturing of Asphalt Emulsions Certificate III

Offered in partnership with the University of Arkansas College of Engineering, the goal of this course is to provide a comprehensive understanding of the manufacturing of asphalt emulsions in pavement maintenance and rehabilitation.  This course takes approximately 16 hours to complete and registrants will have 4 weeks to complete the class. Participants can download and print 136 pages of reference material to put on their shelf.   Please click here to download the front matter of the reference material.  Upon completion, 15 professional development hours will be awarded.

In order to provide a foundation for understanding the manufacturing of asphalt emulsion, this course will begin with a brief overview of the fundamentals of asphalt emulsion, laboratory testing of asphalt emulsion, and applications of asphalt emulsion.  Next, the manufacturing of asphalt emulsion will be broken down into nine lessons.  These lessons will being with the storage and transfer of raw materials.  Next, several examples of producing soap solutions are provided.  Once the soap solution production process is understood, a background of asphalt emulsion mills is given.  After the storage and transfer of asphalt emulsion, the certificate finishes with a discussion on quality control during the manufacturing process.  While every asphalt emulsion plant is different and unique, these fundamental concepts will provide an ability to discuss and explore all facets of the manufacturing of asphalt emulsion.

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss the fundamentals of asphalt emulsion, the tests run on asphalt emulsion, and the uses of asphalt emulsion

  •  List the equipment and devices required to store and transfer both the raw materials of asphalt emulsion and asphalt emulsion itself

  • Describe the steps and proper sequence to produce an asphalt emulsion soap solution

  • Recognize the components and parameters of asphalt emulsion mills

  • Identify the tests and mechanisms for quality control of asphalt emulsion manufacturing
